Tintinara Area School is a co-educational school opened in 1960 with approximately 100 students attending from reception to Y-12.
Tintinara is located 198 kms from the Adelaide GPO, in the Upper South East of South Australia on the Dukes Highway between Melbourne and Adelaide.
Students mainly come from farming families or from the agriculturally based business and services in the town. Four school buses bring in students to school each day. English is the predominant language in the district, with some people with a non-English speaking background. There is a strong sense of community in our school and in the district, and the school is the centre of much community activity. Parents demonstrate a high level of involvement in school events, and are very supportive of the purposes of our school.
